5-4 Decisions Then and Now

Democrats are using the 5-4 decision in Ricci as some sort of vindication for Sotomayor or at least a reassurance that she is within the liberal mainstream (even though I highlight that it was really a 9-0 reversal below).  What is odd is that not long ago the 5-4 decisions in the terrorism cases, such as Hamdan, weren't evidence that Bush was within the mainstream of the terrorism/detention debate; instead it was evidence that the lawless Bushitler was shredding the Constitution and devouring small children by the handful or something along that line.  I guess we can file this away in the liberal hypocrisy file along with the left's newfound comfort with Presidential signing statements.
